US Condems Nigeria For Same-Sex Marriage
According to their Secretary of State, John Kerry, United States was “deeply concerned” by Nigeria’s new law which “dangerously restricts freedom of assembly, association and expression for all Nigerians. The act “is inconsistent with Nigeria’s international legal obligations and undermines the democratic reforms and human rights protections enshrined in its 1999 constitution.”
“People everywhere deserve to live in freedom and equality. No one should face violence or discrimination for who they are or who they love,” Kerry said.
Anyone who is caught in same-sex union will be jailed for 14 years, the new law states.
